Memorial Day signals the start of the summer travel season. Among those taking to the Wisconsin roads will be visitors from Illinois — people Wisconsinites love to hate. Writer Patrick Somerville reflects on both Wisconsin’s and his own conflicted relationship with Illinois.
Patrick Somerville is the author of several books, including his latest novel This Bright River.
Ingenious, dark, thrilling and heartbreaking, This Bright River contains prose that will tempt you to linger on the page and a plot that simply won’t let you. Just fantastic. -Gillian Flynn, bestselling author of Gone Girl
